Another local bar gem in the Queen City!

Located on Montford Drive, was formally an old Pizza Hut from way on back. Been going here for over 15 years, G-Man the chef is amazing with the small kitchen he has to work with. (He is off on Friday nights usually). Ask for the "board" specials and enjoy some great seafood from it. Wings are... read more

From the outside Moosehead looks like an old Pizza Hut. Inside it seems to be a dive bar, but appearances are deceiving. It is run by the owner of a terrific seafood restaurant and has food far better than you would expect. It has the best burgers in Charlotte, by far the best wings (they won a city-wide competition), lots... More

Moosehead is in an old Pizza Hut. It is small and dark (thankfully no longer smoky since the ban) and it is well known for having some of the worst restrooms in the world. That is part of the charm when you get to know the place. The food is generally excellent. For dinner, order whatever the special is and... More

The place is funky in the good sense of the word...Very crowded with locals looking for a good square meal and a decent beer or tea. Unpretentious. Great place to find out what is going on in Charlotte.

This is a great bar and restaurant. The Baja fish taco is seasoned and cooked well. The service is always friendly but get there early for lunch or you will have a bit of a wait.

The wings here are very fresh and crisp and if you're a wings person, they are definitely worth checking out. The advertised "out of this world spicy sauce" wasn't very good I think it was called the Ghost Pepper sauce. It tasted strange and nothing like wing sauce (almost like cough syrup), so I was glad I sampled it first.... More

I've been eating at Moosehead Grill pretty much since it opened its doors. I go with friends, take my family for lunch, etc. The food is great and reasonably priced. The owner, Chris Nielsen, is a hoot! If you don't know him he can come across as a little arrogant and cocky, but he's a really nice guy and cares... More

We recently stopped by this place on our trip to Charlotte. As lovers of dive bars in general, my wife and I loved it. Laid back atmosphere, great food and cheap drinks. Yeah, it's not the cleanest of places, but remind yourself that's it's a dive bar.
